'Mob City' seems very familiar Peering out over the landscape of Los Angeles, one of the characters in the new series Mob City says, "This city . so damn beautiful . but only from a distance . up close, it's all gutter." The truth is, you could describe a lot of cities that way. cable network TNT, immediately brings to mind a bunch of other stuff I've seen before. As far as the big screen goes, Mob City has elements of the Warren Beatty movie Bugsy, at least the parts of it that were set in Los Angeles. Confidential, which starred Guy Pearce, Russell Crowe, Kevin Spacey and Kim Basinger. That one was set a little bit later than Mob City, in 1953, but atmospherically there are similarities. On TV there aren't direct time-frame comparisons, but there are elements of the 1920s-set Boardwalk Empire, the 1950s-set Magic City and the 1960s-set Mad Men. I think of Boardwalk Empire because of the illegal activity and the gangsters and the guns. I think of Magic City for the same reasons. And I think of Mad Men because of a tortured lead character whose experiences in World War II changed the path of his life when he got home. The new mob task force that has recruited Teague is headed by Det. Hal Morrison (Jeffrey DeMunn) and is part of a crusade by Los Angeles Police Chief William Parker (Neal McDonough) to free the city of big-time criminals. The list of potential targets includes not only Bugsy Siegel but also Mickey Cohen (Jeremy Luke), the ruthless king of the local underworld. Parker also won't hesitate to go after dirty members of his own force if he can suss them out. The challenge for Mob City will be taking a lot of familiar elements and weaving them into something that feels new. In the meantime, get ready for more darkness - both literally and figuratively - and cigarette smoke.
